Government-Dominated Energy Touted

Clean energy summit hosted by Sen. Harry Reid portrayed a future of politicized choices


LAS VEGAS — The theme of Tuesday's National Clean Energy Summit, hosted by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, was "the power of choice."

Nevertheless, most of the speakers indicated they want politicians and government — not the choices of American consumers — to determine the country's energy future.

"All forms of government, from federal down to the state, need to be aligned if we're going to be successful in building a green economy," asserted Reid during the conference.
